Located in the Chiquiri Province in the west coast of Panama, Boquete is a small town surrounded by coffee plantations and volcanic scenery. Its location on the Caldera River is strikingly picturesque, amid mountains and national parks. The region borders the Pacific Ocean to the west, as well as Costa Rica and Panama’s interior, and its easy accessibility makes it a popular stopover for travellers driving along the Interamericana Highway.
Boquete holidays are renowned for their unspoilt natural beauty and cool, fresh climate. The rich soil of the province is packed with nutrients that support flowers, coffee production, vegetables and citrus fruits, so the regional cuisine is something quite special. Unsurprisingly, it’s also a haven for lovers of the great outdoors. Holidays to Boquete make the most of the diverse scenery, with hiking, climbing, rafting and soaking in the hot springs all possible nearby. Touring some of the local plantations, coffee lovers can sample a fresh brew of locally produced coffee. Boquete is also a natural paradise, with hiking trails taking you around the dormant volcano of Baru National Park, and through the coffee plantations and strawberry farms of the Chiriqui Highlands. Bird-lovers will want to follow the Los Quetzales Trail, which offers sightings of the colourful and elusive resplendent quetzal bird.
